I hate playing Monopoly . Yes its a classic and considered one of the best board games of all time, but so frustrating to play. After playing it at every thanksgiving and Christmas. I have never played a full game of Monopoly. My family can’t even finish the “1 hour game”; everyone either ends up quitting or someone “cheats” which results in door slams and a lot of loud talking. Maybe what makes my Monopoly career such  a horrible experience . Are the people I have had the pleasure or gloom to play with. I hate playing with people who don’t play with a strategy. Well  maybe buying everything you land on is a strategy (ehh). And then being a stubborn (blank) and refusing to negotiate your property with anyone, so you have one of every freaking color  is a strategy also. Even if I did play with rational people. I still don’t think I am sane enough to play a board game that could possible last up to 3 or 4 hours. So next holiday I think I’m just going to stick to playing  UNO :- ) .



Just A Thought : My Eyes Are Bigger Than My Stomach

Image DetailMy eyes are defiantly bigger than my stomach. On Thanksgiving I’m always the one stuffing my plate with everything I see and I end up not eating half of it. The problem is , that when I am hungry .. I’m HUNGRY ! I would eat anything in sight. The worst scenario is being hungry and in a supermarket. The items I end up leaving with are ridiculous. But at the peak of extreme hunger everything looks so appetizing. Then the kicker is that one my way home I usually end up stopping by some fast food restaurant anyways and order  the biggest thing on the menu . So when I get home I’m looking through a dozen grocery bags filled with a bunch of microwavable, easy-to-make, TV dinner crap. So I have refrained (sorta) from food shopping on an empty stomach. I’ve also bought little snacks to munch on before I go out to eat so I don’t end up spending $8 on a fast food meal. Now the only thing I need to work on is that stupid candy at the checkout counter  (ehh)…..Just A Thought



RantDOM : Hypochondria

Image Detail

Google is defiantly my best friend but also my worst enemy. I am a huge hypochondriac. Every time I have a migraine, upset stomach, sore throat even little things like my finger hurts. I immediately Google the symptom. And after a few minutes of research I have diagnosed myself with some type of illness. The first time I can remember scaring myself to death with an illness that I don’t have, was in the 5th grade. When we had a presentation about sex by the school nurse. We learned how babies were made and about the girl parts and boys parts.But what really freaked me out was the portion of the presentation where the nurse discussed the symptoms of HIV.I can’t exactly remember what she said all the symptoms were. But I know the one symptom she said that stuck in my head was have acne or bumps on your back. I maybe had 4 or 5 of the smallest bumps ever on my back. But I still went crazy ! Oh my gosh ; I have HIV. I began to scratch and scratch my back more and more; until I really had bumps on my back. I had developed a rash of little tiny bumps. Now I don’t remember how I got over that little fiasco but eventually I guess I just forgot about the whole situation. All I know is that it sucks thinking you are ill. Your mood changes and you just feel depressed. My mine is constantly racing with half of it saying I do have the illness and the other half say I don’t. I think I’ve gotten better … a little. Although the other day I was watching a video on Parkinson’s disease and I immediately started remembering all the sores and tingly feelings I have ever gotten on my body. Which I briefly freaked out about. It is important to exam yourself and recognize when your body is feeling a little funny just in case you actually do have something. But I now make a conscious effort not to jump to any conclusion without seeing a actual doctor.
